    Hello All,

    I started my summer A & P I on June 5 and so far have had two lecture tests and one lab practical. My next lab practical (skeletel) is on Thursday. [evil]We have a lecture test every Monday and a lab practical every Thursday. [/evil]We basically have to cover 12 chapters in 5 weeks, we are in lecture and lab 4 days a week, 4 hours a day. Seems to be about the same as everyone else.

    Does anyone know of any good flash cards for the bones, etc., best brand or whatever?

    Here is the link to my schools biology department and they have lots of helpful tools and links that you may find useful for not only A & P I but all biology courses. Hope it helps & good luck everyone!

    Thank you, this site will be really helpful for me when i start A & P this fall 2007 at BMCC in NYC. I just brought the A & P coloring workbook from Barnes & Noble to get a head start. Check out B &N's medical section, they have great stuff for studying A &P

    You are lucky! You only have 12 chapters. My six week course has us covering 17 chapters. It is online though so at least I save the classroom time. We only have to go into class for testing. I can't really help you with your question. I bought Grey's A & P flashcard box but have not really had anytime to look at them. It takes so much of my time just going thru all the course work plus the Lab CD's. The lab CD's we use from McGraw Hill called Anatomy & Physiology Revealed are really great. They have self tests on the CD's which cover everything so it is a great learning tool.

    Hopeful, my teacher suggested this website for contractions, it works really well!

    1) Go to: www.mhhe.com/seeley7

    2) Go to Student Edition

    3) Go to Chapter 9

    4) Look up different types of contractions.

    Hope this helps!

    I really hope someone can help me. I am taking A & P online. My instructor gave us a drawing of a brain and the following directions:
    1. Draw a sensory neural pathway from the skin of the foot to the appropriate cerebral cortical area. (Refer to the homunculus for locating the foot sensory area.) Be certain to include three neurons with a cell body, dendrites, axon and axonal terminus on each neuron.

    2. Draw a motor pathway to the muscles of the left hand using the same rules outlined for the sensory pathway. Be certain that the axons of neurons travel vertically only in white matter.
    I am lost and so are my classmates. Any help would sure be appreciated!

    Well, I just have one week left. It has gone really fast. One more lab exam, practical and written, one lecture exam, and one paper due. It was pretty overwhelming at first, but you can do it. It helped me to try and look over the material before class, and before tests to do all the practice/review questions at the end of each chapter.
    If one class had an exam, I just quit studying for the other one and focused on the imminent threat. Then I would coast in that one and catch up in my studying for the other one. And on exams, answer every question, even if it's a total guess. I was suprised how many half-points I picked up on bones when I had no idea and just put a generic label like 'medial tuberosity'. You can do it!

    Thank you for the info. I am taking A&P 1 and English 2 this fall 2007 in the NYC. This will give me the opportunity to get a head start.

    Im trying to figure out what classes would be good to take first, I want to take english 111, anatomyand phsy1,and Math120. Would this be to much to take on at one time by me working the 3-1130pm shift.

    For me, this load would be overwhelming, but with good time management and study habits, doable.

    My English class required us to write lots of essays and research papers. I consider English one of my better subjects and still found it a challenge to take this class with Micro and Chem. Otherwise - this probably would have been a "cake" class.

    Math was never my strongest subject so I had to get a tutor - and spent what seemed like tons of time burning the midnight oil on homework.

    I am taking A&P now and devote a considerable amount of time on it. There is so much to memorize for this class that I find I need at least 2 hours for every hour I am in class just to keep my head above water.

    There are people who take on fulltime class loads and work but I don't see how they do it without sacrificing their sanity! I have my hands full enough with being a fulltime student, homeschooling my daughter and staying semi on top of household chores!

    I would suggest evaluating your time management skills and study habits before taking on this load. You will have to sacrifice alot of personal leisure time, time with friends and family and just plain get used to having a messy house! If you are determined enough, you can do anything you set your mind to do. Good luck!

    So far I am enjoying my A&P I class! I found an interesting website that has live human dissections done by the guy who did the Bodies exhibits. It covers basic anatomy but he explains and shows how certain diseases affect the body. Hope this helps!

    This is very cool!

    Only if you can study at work. I work a 9-5, and two classes per semester was suffecient if you want to gets A's and B's. In order for me to get into the nursing program at my school (BMCC in NYC). I can get no less than an A- in English 101, psychology 100, nursing math, and A&P 1. I am taking A&P 1 and English 201 this fall 2007. English 101 was a lot of reading and writing papers, and your math 120 ( which should be nursing math) is alot of math conversion problems. I hear A&P 1 is so much memorization that it is almost a crime. lol. You can always drop a class before the deadline if it is to overwhelming in the beginning. Taking those three classes, working 3-1130pm would be overwhelming for me because of all the memorization A&P 1 has. Good Luck!
